Sunday, Sept. 29th, 2019 from 10:00am - 4:00pm
Marc Lesser is internationally recognized for pioneering work in mindful leadership, creating exceptional business cultures, and supporting profound well-being. In this workshop, you’ll explore the tools you need to shift awareness, enhance communication, build trust, eliminate fear and self-doubt, and cut down on unnecessary workplace drama.
You’ll learn how the inner work of mindfulness and self-awareness meets the outer work of leadership and business as forces for positive change and results that matter.
This highly-interactive workshop is based on Marc’s latest book, Seven Practices of a Mindful Leader: Lessons from Google and a Zen Monastery Kitchen.
The practices are:
1. Love the work
2. Do the work
3. Don’t be an expert
4. Connect to your pain
5. Connect to the pain of others
6. Depend on others
7. Keep making it simpler
Embracing any one of the 7 practices alone can be life-changing. When used together, they support a path of well-being, productivity, and positive influence.
The principles in this workshop can be applied to leadership at any level, though it’s also suitable for anyone interested in building the inner strengths necessary to meet and shift the personal, professional, and global challenges we all face.
Workshop Fees*: $125 members/$175 nonmembers
